    In August 2006, Global Green USA announced the winner of the Sustainable Design Competition for New Orleans. The project, by Andrew Kotchen, Matthew Berman, and their New York office workshop/apd will be built in the Holy Cross Neighborhood to set an example both for supportive community housing in the beleaguered city and for sustainability in residential design in general.

    While architects in the Northern Hemisphere have been appropriately fixated on manipulating southern orientations of buildings in pursuit of climate-responsive architecture, those "Down Under" have been giving the same attention to north-facing facades.

    In the new Business School for Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in New Zealand, the architecture firm JASMAX has designed a northwest facade that puts on a visual show in response to the daily sun path.
